Hello friends, I am teacher looking to get into instructional design, with the possibility of pursuing other job opportunities outside of school. I found WGU, being most cost effective has two programs available with instructional design courses. (M.Ed.) Master's in Learning & Technology Degree Program | WGU Master's in Instructional Design (M.Ed.) Degree Program Online | WGU I am concerned that the instructional design program won't be accepted for a salary increase for me. Would the learning and technology program be a safer choice for me to pursue both public school and instructional design? Another university I am looking into specifically states that their MS in ID is not accepted as a rank change for teachers, yet their new Master's in ED with an ID area will count be accepted. WKU Instructional Design | Western Kentucky University Masters Of Advanced Teacher Education - STE | Western Kentucky University (wku.edu) Any advice is always appreciated.
